Cop-Out: Pictures! Pictures for you!

I've got a job interview today.

Then I have a midterm to take.

Then I have a program to present at.

Yes, I know I've been bombarding you with "I'm busy" notes, but I can't help it. I'm busy.

As some filler, please accept these random images of interest.

First, here is my new business card:
It's very simple and non-flashy, and it sure-as-Hell won't get me featured amongst the more imaginative cards. Now, if I had all the money I needed, I think I'd go for a card like Steve Wozniak's. But I don't, and this one gets the job done, while at the same time confirming my place in Haas. So it'll do.

Second, this is what my hair looks like when I wake up in the morning:

If only it was a bit cleaner and more symmetrical, I would never even have to mess with it at all!

Finally, here's that picture of the weight I've lost so far (meaning, by a couple Fridays ago).

I'm actually making this one a pure link. Click here if you want to see it. Don't click if:
1. You want to wait to see a more dramatic change later on.
2. You don't want to see me without a shirt on.

Okay, that's all for now. I promise more/better content in the near future...sometime.

In the meantime, wish me luck!

Good Luck!

By the way, that picture, the most dramatic change in it is your radically different hair color. Yeah, you've lost some belly, so good for you, though i wonder if you've accounted for muscle mass being greater than the mass of the fat it's replacing, meaning that it may very well be possible that you'll gain weight while you try to go for those last few pounds. You're so thorough though that you probably calculated your BMI several times, and accounted for that with a large percentage to spare. Either way,

Good Luck.

Pro tip, son. When a person talks about their pride in losing weight, it's best not to say that it doesn't look like they haven't lost much weight. (Goes double for the female persuasion.)

However, I take no offense, mainly because my goddamn hair seems to be the only thing anyone notices about me ever. Truth, only one person has actually mentioned that I seem to have lost a good deal of weight.

Oh, and since you mentioned body weight, I think it fair to mention that since I've started measuring (via a BMI scale, not through those inaccurate calculations) I've dropped from 26.8 to 20.7.

You look amazing and they are probably jealous. The difference is dramatic...subtlities like neck, arms, and cicumfrence...much narrower. You stay proud of yourself. You know how it makes you feel and I am totally proud of you because it takes amazing discipline, especially in your environment, where bad eating is a right of passage and stress is high and time is minimal. To have done so well under those circumstances is a major feat. Your family is very proud of you and inspired. Because of you I am now committed to doing the eliptical or the tread mill every day and already I feel proud of myself and confident and determined. So thank you for being my inspiration. I'll be right there with you trying to return to my fighting weight again and regain some athleticism that Trader Joe's has stolen from me.
You keep on going forward with pride and a clear intention of what you want. As we all know, you can achieve anything.
Congrats on your interview. I am holding a good thought for your perfect placement...and housing and room mate.
